- two rulers
- two quarters
- the edge of a table
- Slide one quarter to the edge of the table.
- Lay one ruler so it lines up diagonally to the table edge, one end hanging over, the other end touching the first quarter.
- Put the second quarter on the end of the ruler hanging over the table.
- Put your finger on the first ruler, pressing it onto the table, then use the other ruler to give it a good whack, hitting it near the end that hangs over. Watch those quarters go!
